My Students

Help me give to my students, music performance opportunities to improve their musical skill and achievements. Performing music instills an appreciation of fine arts, creativity, as well as embracing the concepts of teamwork and unity for all of our students.

Our high school jazz band is made up of students encompassing grades 9-12 performing on saxophones, trumpets, trombones, and our rhythm section.

Our students are growing musically stronger each day while gaining a deeper appreciation for the genre of jazz music and jazz performance.

My Project

Our school band program is growing leaps and bounds and many have expressed the opportunity to perform in a jazz band. For the first time in many years, our school is going to offer a jazz band class for our high school students. In doing so, we will need a few instruments for our jazz band. In particular, we will need a bass guitar.

This project will provide a high-quality foundation for our students to learn about the Jazz and the qualities that make it such.

By incorporation jazz instruments, students will gain a real understanding of how jazz is different that other genres of music, how it is performed, and a greater appreciation for the style.
